Blount Introduces New Organic Foodservice Sides


FALL RIVER, MA
Thursday, September 29th, 2016

Blount Fine Foods has more than just soup in the works for the hearty fall season. The company is now introducing a new line of organic side dishes designed for foodservice, that seeks to open up new opportunities for deli managers’ hot-to-go operations.

Bob Sewall, Executive Vice President for Sales & Marketing, Blount

“Every day, deli managers and buyers are talking to us about how to expand and enhance their prepared foods offering, especially in hot-to-go where the more forward-thinking chains are starting to rise above the pack,” said Bob Sewall, Blount’s Executive Vice President for Sales & Marketing.

Those looking to satisfy fall food craving may find their palate-pleased by one of the line’s flagship offerings—Organic Mashed Sweet Potatoes. Both gluten-free and vegetarian, the Organic Mashed Sweet Potatoes are made of creamy sweet potatoes with a touch of brown sugar and select spices.

Organic Black Beans, Organic Creamed Spinach, Butternut Squash

According to a press release, Blount developed its organic line of sides not just for delis seeking to elevate their offerings, but also for already established foodservice operations striving to raise the bar.

“Few actions by retailers tell consumers you are serious about your hot-to-go cuisine better than the introduction of dishes that are certified organic,” added Sewall.

Organic Creamed Kale & Spinach, Organic Mac & Cheese, Organic Barbecue Beans

The new line of Blount Organic Foodservice Side Dishes come in ten varieties, including the following:

  • Organic Barbecue Beans
  • Organic Black Beans
  • Organic Butternut Squash
  • Organic Creamed Corn
  • Organic Creamed Kale & Spinach
  • Organic Creamed Spinach with Mushrooms
  • Organic Lentils & Chickpeas
  • Organic Mac & Cheese
  • Organic Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Each variety ships frozen in four 4-pound bags, and six of these products can also be ordered shipped refrigerated. For more details on this line and more, visit www.BlountFineFoods.com.
